We arrived in Sturgis on Wednesday, July 30th. We are staying at Katmandu Campground. We had to make these reservations 8 months ago! This campground is only open during the two weeks of the Sturgis Rally! Over 500,000 motorcycle riders will come here in the next week. We have met people from all over the country. Some have been coming for years and some like me; their first time. Jerry came here 20 years ago with Ronnie Illhardt. Things have really changed. I will be posting more pictures from downtown tomorrow. We will be here thru August 11th. This rally dates back to the year 1938 when a group of locals got together to race motorcycles. So it goes, men and motorcycles!!! Although I must admit I have seen a lot of women riders as well.
Along with the Rally we will be taking rides to visit the many sites such as Mt Rushmore and the Badlands; Custer's State Park; to name a few.
